Venture Challenge Spring 2022 open for applications!

Curious what the Venture Challenge may bring you? This is what last year's alumni say about it.

"The Venture Challenge really helped us to understand where we were with our business model and what critical topics we needed to address to bring our company to the next level. The programme drills down to the core of what the problem is you're trying to solve and the coaches will not let you get away with the usual lame startup excuses. Looking back, the Venture Challenge greatly contributed to developing our vision and value proposition."

 Just Schornagel, Co-founder & CEO of SLAM Orthopedic

"The Venture Challenge’s experienced coaches are skilled in asking the right critical questions, and together with a fitting set of external experts, helped us to identify and optimise the integral elements of the business model behind our platform technology. This individual aspect was extremely valuable to us and is what sets the Venture Challenge apart from other programmes."

Niek Savelkoul, CEO of Scope Biosciences B.V.

"The PacingCure team felt that the Venture Challenge was exquisitely crafted and executed to unlock the team's potential to develop its core business strategies. As a first token of success, this has led to PacingCure securing its second EU Eurostars Grant."

Geert Boink CEO of PacingCure

"By participating with the Venture Challenge, I have made significant steps for our LUMC spinout Sella Therapies. Very important for me was that I had to formalize my group, and had time to interact closely with them during the bootcamps. The coaching, the exercises, and the feedback from the speakers and other participants have helped me to see what the unique value of our venture is and formulate a business plan. During the last day of the challenge we formally incorporated Sella Therapies and started as a business. Participating in the Venture Challenge has really moved me forward and was critical in starting the company in the right way with the right people."

Wouter van Furth CEO of Sella Therapies
